Can I Stay And Watch The Session?

New members are invited into the hall to watch during the trial sessions. Beyond that, we do not allow parents are guardians to sit in the hall and watch as it distracts the gymnasts. Younger gymnasts can have one parent or guardian in with them for the first lesson.

The last week of term will be a watching week where parents and guardians will be invited in to see what the gymnasts have been working on in the term.

Can My Child Try Out A Session Before Joining?

Yes, of course! We welcome trial lessons before signing up for a class. We are only able to offer trial lessons if there are spaces in the class. Trial lessons can be booked via the Class For Kids Booking System

Do You Offer Sibling Discounts?

Yes, we offer a 5% sibling discount on courses and camps.

If you require a sibling discount, please get in touch so we can apply the 5% discount to your membership.




How Do I Pay For A Class or Trial??

All classes can be paid via our Class For Kids Booking system.

What Age Must My Child Be to join?

Children attending our preschool programme must be at least 3 years old. Children attending our recreational programme must be 5 years old or in Reception at school.

What Happens After My Trial?

After you have attended your trial session, you will be sent an invite to the session. We will hold the space for you for 48 hours. If you don’t book your space within that time, we will assume you no longer want the space and open it to the next person on the waiting list.

What Happens If I Book The Wrong Class?

If you have selected the wrong class please email us at and we will move your child onto the correct class provided there are spaces available.

If there are no spaces available you will be added to the waiting list for the class.



What Happens If My Child Is Late?

Pick-ups and drop-offs differ depending on the venue you are attending.

London Met:

If your gymnast attends London Met you should arrive 10 minutes before the start of the session.


Coaches will wait 10 minutes after the start time of the class. After this time they will be coaching in the hall and unable to let you into the session.

Gymnasts arriving after the pick ups will not be granted access to the session as they would have missed the warm up.

What Should My Child Wear?

Leotards or sports clothing should be worn to the sessions.

We do not allow crop tops to be worn in sessions.

All jewellery should be removed prior to the sessions. Newly pierced ears should be covered up with tape or plasters.

Gymnastics is performed with bare feet.

Club leotards and shorts can be ordered through the website Shop.
